Chill Mode Mix Vol. 12: Fanspastik Edition

Chill Mode Hip Hop

There is very little [new] hip hop that I get excited about these days. Which is unfortunate because of my love for the genre. But one group of producers, the Jazz Spastiks, get me pumped up every single time they release something new. And it’s always really really good. I thought it was only right to dedicate a Chill Mode mix to their music, since it’s so laid back.

So enjoy the mix, then go buy all of their stuff.

Chill Mode Mix Vol. 11

Chill Mode Hip Hop

Lately, I’ve been hearing some really good (both old and new) hip hop that’s pushed me to take a breather from the usual house music, and get back to the roots of the type of mixes that started this site, good old classic hip hop. So I’m adding an addition to the Chill Mode series. I think it turned out pretty damn good. I’ve already rocked to it a few times, and I think you’d dig it too if you’ve liked previous ones.

Enjoy!

Chill Mode Mix Vol. 10

Chill Mode Hip Hop

I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I’ve mixed up a Chill Mode session, but I’m glad we’re back with another one. While the studio is still in a flux, I was able to get a mini setup together and mix up these tunes. Like all the past ones, this is very chill, with some old stuff, new stuff, and middle aged stuff. Enjoyable the whole way through.

I’ll post the tracklisting shortly.

Enjoy!

Chill Mode Mix Vol. 9

Chill Mode Hip Hop

For the past few months I’ve been going through my oversized music library trying to purge my collection. For as fun as it was collecting tons of music over the last 10ish years, it’s a big pain in my ass managing that music when it comes to DJing. Of course going through my library I find some gems here and there that I hadn’t heard in a while. And that brings me to the latest volume of the Chill Mode Mix series.

While I felt a little rusty at parts, I think it turned out pretty decent. Enough to not want to keep it to myself.

  1. Kero One – In All The Wrong Places
  2. Crown City Rockers Ft. Destani Wolf – Sidestep
  3. D’Angelo – Devil’s Pie
  4. LMNO – Grin And Bear It
  5. Sound Providers – Pacific Vibrations
  6. Urbs & Cutex – Up & Down
  7. Move.meant – Say When
  8. Brand Nubian – Shinin’ Star
  9. Gang Starr – Tonz ‘O’ Gunz
  10. Big Noyd Ft. Mobb Deep – Recognize & Realize (Part 2)
  11. Thes One – Tribute to Weldon Irvine
  12. Fat Jon – Repaint Tomorrow

Chill Mode Mix Vol. 8

I’m just now realizing that it’s been almost a year since the last Chill Mode Mix was posted here. That’s pretty pathetic, and I can guarantee that it won’t be this long until the next one is recorded. I’m getting pretty comfortable with my new controller though, so these will start smoothing out and sounding better and better.

But here are the tracks…

  1. 14k – Marbles
  2. M.E.D. – JWF (Instrumental)
  3. Hazy Rooms – Herbal Essence
  4. Apani – Abracadabra

  7. Redman – Yesh Yesh Ya’ll (Instrumental)
  8. GZA – Shadowboxin (Instrumental)
  9. Big Pun – Boomerang (Instrumental)
  10. Cappadonna – Dart Throwing
  11. Pharcyde – Groupie Therapy (Instrumental)
  12. The Notorious B.I.G. – I Got a Story to Tell

Chill Mode Mix Vol. 7

Chill Mode Hip Hop Instrumental

Here we go with the latest installment of the Chill Mode Mix series. I have to say that this might be my favorite type of mix to do on this site. I don’t like doing them often because I really want to make sure the track selection reflects the title. It took me some time to get into a groove with this mix, so some of the transitions aren’t as crisp as I’d like. But it’s still good.

Here are the tracks…

  1. Natural Resource – Negro League Baseball (Instrumental)
  2. Thes One – Yacht Club (Instrumental)
  3. Declaime – Roll ‘Em Right (Instrumental)
  4. Giano, Michael Knight – Walking The Dog
  5. Funkdoobiest – Rock On (Remix)
  6. Pharcyde – Somethin’ That Means Somethin’ (Instrumental)
  7. Rasco – Sophisticated Mic Pro’s
  8. Pharoahe Monch – Behind Closed Doors (Instrumental)
  9. Swollen Members – Consumption (Instrumental)
  10. Del the Funky Homosapien – Stress the World
  11. J. Rocc – Thru The Tulips
  12. Necro – Violins Of Violence (Instrumental)
  13. High & Mighty – The Meaning
  14. The Fab 5 – Leflaur Leflah Eshkoshka (Instrumental)
  15. Dr. Dre – Housewife (Instrumental)
  16. Lord Finesse – No Gimmicks (Instrumental)
  17. Slum Village – Players (Instrumental)

Chill Mode Mix Vol. 6

Chill Mode Hip Hop Instrumental

I thought it was time for another installment of the Chill Mode Mix series. I actually didn’t think about this being apart of the series until I was about halfway through. I probably should have started it off with more instrumentals, like the previous ones…. but there are plenty of instrumentals in here to, you know, chill to. Here’s the tracks:

  1. Jazz Spastiks – Yes, Yes Feat. Rebels to the Grain
  2. Dug Infinite – Exceptance
  3. MC Eiht – Late Nite Hype Part 2
  4. Lootpack – On Point
  5. Black Star – Twice Inna Lifetime (Instrumental)
  6. No I.D. – I Used To Love H.E.R. (Remix)
  7. Jazz Spastiks Ft. C-dash – Dashtastik
  8. MF Doom – Licorice
  9. Atmosphere – Free Or Dead (Instrumental)
  10. Busta Rhymes – Break Ya Neck (Instrumental)
  11. Jay-Z – People Are Talking (Instrumental)
  12. Dr. Dre – Bitch Niggaz (Instrumental)
  13. J Dilla – Alien Family (Instrumental)
  14. Shyheim Ft. Squig- Shoalin Style
  15. Quasimoto – Microphone Mathematics
  16. Non Phixion – Black Helicopters (Instrumental)
  17. Showbiz & A.G. – You Know Now [Remix]
  18. Aaliyah – If Your Girl Only Knew (Instrumental)
  19. People Under The Stairs – The Breakdown

Enjoy!

P.S. I have two tracks in this mix from Jazz Spastiks. One of the best groups I’ve heard in a while, and you should check out their album 12 Bit Spit. You will definitely be hearing more of their tracks in my mixes to come. They’re that good.

Chill Mode Mix: Necro Edition

Chill Mode Instrumental

I know we’re hot off the heals of a Chill Mode Mix already, but I feel this needs to be posted. I’ve listened to it a bunch over the past few days, and no longer want to keep it to myself.

So, one of the ideas I had for this CMM series was producer editions. In other words, having the whole mix of all tracks from one producer. In this case, it’s Necro. His lyrics can be a lot to stomach. He invented death-rap, if that says anything. But if you’re like me, you listen to Necro because he’s an amazing producer. One of my favorites in fact. So you should definitely give this if you value great production. It’s all instrumentals (only one song with lyrics), and fits the CMM series well.

I will soon be having a weekly live broadcast where I mix some tunes, and possibly record to post here. I’ve been playing around with it the last few days, and have gotten a good response. So I will announce what day of the week that is going to be shortly, but feel free to tell me what days work for you.

Enjoy. No tracklisting for this one.

Chill Mode Mix Vol. 5

Chill Mode Hip Hop Instrumental

This is the latest installment of the Chill Mode Mix series, which, from most of the comments I’ve heard about this site, seems to be the favorite. I have to say, that it’s fun making them too, and upon listening to this one more, I got a few ideas for how to mix up the series.

There are a couple not-so-smooth transitions. I really need to be more patient with some of these mixes, but sometimes I just get a little too pumped to bring in the next track. Anyways, here’s the tracklisting…

  1. Madlib – Episode XI
  2. K-DEF – Hey Funkbox
  3. Atmosphere – Apple (Instrumental)
  4. Mobb Deep – G.O.D. Pt. 3 (Instrumental)

  6. J-Zone – Kizzy’s Revenge (Instrumental)
  7. Quasimoto – Low Class Conspiracy (Instrumental)
  8. Asheru & Blue Black – Smiley (Instrumental)
  9. Group Home – Up Against Tha Wall (Instrumental)
  10. A Tribe Called Quest – God Lives Through
  11. Del Tha Funkee Homosapien – Phony Phranchise (Domino Remix Instrumental)
  12. Hieroglyphics – The Who (Del Mix Instrumental)

Chill Mode Mix Vol. 4

Chill Mode Hip Hop Instrumental

The fourth installment of the Chill Mode Mix series, which seems to be the ones that people like the most. It’s good background music while working. I’m thinking of doing some custom artwork for these, but not sure quite yet. I have a new project in the works, so I’m not sure how much time I’ll have, but we’ll see.

I’ve also added search up in the top right. Should come in handy when I add playlists, and when this site gets more populated.

Anywho… enjoy.
